The show is excellent. High energy and lots of variety and great talent. We did not come for the supper but will add that the next visit. Those around us seemed to be quite enjoying the food

My husband and I visited Madrid in the end of January and booked Cafe the Chinitas for the flamenco show and dinner for one of the nights. The show was good and the artists very good dancers, but this is as far as it goes. The food was very disappointing, service slow, disorganised, not a very good experience. I would... More

Amazing place! People come here to enjoy flamenco first of all! It`s a very colorful and exciting performance. Well cooked food is just the pleasant addition.

Came here for drinks and the flamenco show which was amazing. The staff is a bit stiff, but overall friendly.

We visited this venue after reading a recommendation in a tourist guide. It was 36 euros per head for 3 adults and 2 teenagers (180 euros in total). Despite booking in advance and the venue being only half full we were allocated a table at the back of the room and unfortunately our view of the small stage was obscured.... More

We really enjoyed the show. The restaurant opens later in the evening and you can either have a meal and a show for (52 euros per person) or a glass of wine and the show (36 euros per person). We paid 72 euros total and opted for the no meal because we were not sure what kind of dish they... More

A local recommended us to go to La Bola for the best cocido madrileño but they only accepted bookings so they sent us here which is the same cocido one block away. The cocido was amazing slow cooked in a pot, and served right there from it like a ritual, the service was one of the best we had in... More

I'm an expert in Flamencos. I know them almost all in Spain, and some in Latin America. I have to say this place is one of my favorites. No precisely for the food, which is pretty much average .... but you don't want to go here for the food, but for the flamenco show.... it is a great place. They... More

We were wanting to see a Flamenco show and thought that this was a city to do it in. After reading Tripadvisor reviews we decided on this one. It was also close to our hotel so we could walk and take in some of the sights and nightlife in the plazas. We made reservations and gave ourselves lots of time... More

On this stage in Madrid, located in an XVIII century palace on Torija Street, the soul of flamenco, that special feeling that sends chills through you, resides. Many famous artists have performed here and the aroma, the character, and the charm they exuded still lingers: La Chunga with her bare feet; the elegance of Manuel de los Santos, El Agujeta; and Aurora, who with her rhythmic Flamenco clapping, awoke the passion of Enrique Morente.
Here, also, Serranito stepped forward to emphasize the guitar as an instrument to be listened to and a young Jose Merce began his career. He still comes in, when he can get away from his busy schedule, to share in the flamenco ambiance, sheltered by the shawls that still adorn the stage as if they were drying under the Malaga sun. Many performers have left their mark on this stage and the tradition lives on its boards. The traditional flamenco troupe is comprised of 9 artists: dancers, guitarists and singers.

The Verdasco family has managed to combine a great show with the flavors of traditional cuisine, keeping the doors open to both local and international fans who wish to feel the history of flamenco for a night.

And recently Spanish Federation of Hospitality has given us "NATIONAL AWARDS OF HOSPITALITY" - FEHR in its sixth year, in the category "Outstanding hospitality company in the promotion of culture."
We can not forget some famous people who have passed through our tables, the King and Queen of Spain, Don Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, Prince Charles and Lady Di, Hussein of Jordan, a show worthy of kings, who have not wanted to lose other famous people of our time as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Pepe, Rafael Nadal and many famous actors and do not want to lose the best flamenco in town.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
